Saturday was National Dog Day, which I spent hanging out with my pal Scruffy.
But I thought for this week’s travel theme, rather than just focusing on canine companions, I’d open it up to all those wonderful animals who share our lives. Of course, I have my fair share of dog photos, like this flashy guy at Seattle’s Folk Life Festival…
… and this pup celebrating St. Patrick’s Day (umm, somebody should tell him that kilts and tartan are actually Scottish)…
…but there’s also this guy’s macaw who came out to celebrate the all-clear after Hurricane Irene in Manhattan…
…this fabulously chilled out cat in the Ballard neighborhood of Seattle…
…and these gorgeous horses roaming the hills around the Nine Stones by Mount Leinster.
Do you have any photogenic pets to put on parade for this week’s theme? If you would like to join in (everyone’s welcome!) here’s what to do:
- Create your own post and title it Travel theme: Animal Companions
- Include a link to this page in your post so others can find it too
- Watch out for the next travel theme which will come out next weekend
- Don’t forget to subscribe to keep up to date on the latest weekly travel themes. Sign up via the email subscription link in the sidebar or RSS.
Until one has loved an animal, a part of one’s soul remains unawakened. – Anatole France
What a lonely species we are, searching for signals of life from other galaxies, adopting companion animals, visiting parks and zoos to commune with other beasts. In the process, we discover our shared identity. – Diane Ackerman

That’s an enjoyable choice of theme, Ailsa, so much so that I did another post just to participate. 🙂 Cut choices for your post. Have a great week!

Whoof whoof! There you go again… at a gallop, not a canter! I’ll be digging in the archive to find a photo or three!
(Mind you… I don’t have to dig far… my pal Pepsi, features often here. The grand-kids’ dog.)
